This is a great cookie for Christmas. It makes alot like any bar cookie and the cherry glaze makes a beautiful presentation on the cookie tray. I like to put the glaze on while the bar arre just a little warm (cool about 25 minutes) that way the glaze really sinks in, don't worry it will setup as it continues to cool. Also finish off with a sprinkling of mini-choco chips.

I used pecans instead of walnuts because I just like the taste better. The larger jar of maraschino cherries worked great. As for the icing. I used 2 Tablespoons of butter and 1 1/2 cups confectioners' sugar with the cherry juice. My mom introduced me to this recipe with the changes. This is positively one of the most delicious desserts I have had. We can't stop eating them. HELP! :)

Excellent bar cookie. Love the taste of the shortbread base combined with the cherry flavor. Family and friends loved this. It's a great holiday cookie! I've even made it for a Valentine's day party.
